Rovio, the Angry Birds manufacturer revealed on Monday that since the release of Angry birds space for Android, iOS, Mac and Windows the number of downloads of the game has gone up to 10 million times in just a matter of 3 days. The fourth version of the Angry Birds, Angry Birds Space revealed after the launching of Angry Birds Rio ranges from $0.99 for the iOS and a new ad-free version of Android costing $6 for the Window’s PC.
Even though the game has offered 60 new levels at the very launch of the latest version of the game, users have already started requesting for more claiming that they are done with all the levels. On this demand, Rovio has promised new free levels coming soon to the users in the very near future. The free updates for the game have not quite been ready for the release yet. The latest version of the Angry birds didn’t just change the location but also added entirely new ways of playing the game such as gravitational fields and orbital trajectories.
Alike the wormholes present in early games like Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros, breakout, the angry birds space has these wormholes which act as a transport medium to the regular Angry birds Space quadrant and also into hidden levels. These act as homage to all the old classic games.
The huge launch and gigantic amount of download numbers of the old angry birds attached to the Seattle’s Space needle are proving an advantage to Rovio whilst some users are being frustrated due to the games continual crashes on iOS devices such as iPod Touch and most 4th generation devices. The response from Rovio considering this current crash situation is to reboot the device and give another try. For now, the reboot trick has worked for most of the users and there’s some happy gaming going on over the Angry Birds.
In order to reboot an iOS device, a hold has to be maintained on the sleep/wake button at the very top of the device until a slider pops out saying “slide to power off”, then after sliding your finger across the button, the phone starts shutting down. Again, by holding onto the sleep/wake button the phone comes back up and hopefully the angry birds doesn’t pose a problem now.
